I’m Sorry Isn’t Good Enough
Posted: Wednesday, December 9
Verse of the day:
Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish. (Joel 2:13)
Have you ever had some say the words “I’m sorry” to you but you knew in their heart they weren’t sorry? They were saying the right words on the outside but on the inside there was no remorse or desire for change in behavior. Kids are some of the most obvious offenders in this area. You catch them doing something wrong and in order to avoid the consequence they quickly start saying “I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” As adults we aren’t exempt from doing this either. We offend someone with what we say and so we say, “I’m sorry” but in our hearts we aren’t.
